To make sure your SideStix work perfectly for you, please click on each section below to select your preferences for the following customization options.



SideStix offer three different cuff options that have different advantages for different walking styles.




The Delrin cuff attachment posts are very strong, but if you need them to be virtually unbreakable, the upgraded aluminum is a good choice. Increases weight by 20 grams per side.


For those who need the toughest protection against scuffs and scrapes for their SideStix. Add a durable matte black polyolefin finish to the forearm assemblies and lower tubes. Increases the weight by 30 grams per side.
Not compatible with colour wraps.


Add a splash of colour AND protect your lower tubes from scuffs and scrapes.

Please note, the wraps are designed to be temporary and removeable. Over time, as your SideStix come into contact with each other and other objects the wraps may begin to peel up or chip away. At that point you can either remove them, leaving the lower tube bare, or order replacements. Click here to see the wraps in more detail.

The Discovery are the lightest forearm crutches that we make. Without any moving parts and requiring no maintenance, these light weight crutches can handle the toughest conditions that you throw at them including water, sand, and mud.
Discovery Adapter
The Discovery is best for people who only walk shorter distances (under 1km) and have a more relaxed walking style. These people typically won’t need the damping shock absorber of the Boundless, and will benefit more from the Discovery’s lighter weight.

Right from the start we designed SideStix high performance crutches to be sleek, stylish, and silent. With a selection of lower tube wraps, you can blend in or stand out. The clamp system allows you to set the height exactly where you want it and lets you to swap out tubes and tips as you need, all while keeping them silent.

Made with aircraft-grade aluminum and carbon fiber, the Discovery crutches are very lightweight (approximately 730g each) and extremely strong. We’ve stress-tested them for millions of cycles and had them independently tested and approved by the University of Pittsburgh Human Engineering Research Laboratories (ISO 11334-1: 2007).
Carbon Fiber Crutches Lower Tube
Combining ergonomic angles with a completely custom-built approach means that every pair of SideStix fits perfectly. Once you submit your order, we analyze your measurements and then build each pair according to your dimensions and walking style. That means your pair of SideStix are just as unique as you.
Discovery Ergonomic Forearm Angles
A number of options allow you to build the pair of SideStix that is right for you. These options include different grip styles, lower tubes made from carbon fiber or aluminum and also three different types of cuffs; a front cuff, a side cuff, and an open cuff. The front cuff is a standard cuff opening that allows you to easily get in and out of them while still giving good side to side support. The side cuff gives you great support, allows you to easily get in and out of them, but has the added benefit that they will stay on your arm while you reach for something. The open cuff gives you the most freedom, but provides the least amount of side to side support.
Discovery Cuff Options
These durable crutches are compatible with all our accessories, meaning you can feel confident walking on any terrain. Grip Caps can help on trails or icy conditions, Sand Shoes will take you to beaches or through mud, and Snowshoes will take through powder snow in the mountains.
Boundless Accessories
A limited lifetime warranty combined with superior build quality means that you will save money and reduce the chances of secondary over-use injuries, over a lifetime of owning your SideStix.

    I have been using sidstix-crutches (discovery) since 2019 and I must admit, it is the best crutch I ever had since my childhood. No more pain in the arms, wrists, elbows and shoulders and they are so quiet. No more click-click, a sound I hated so much during all my life. I was able to almost double the distance I can walk, my record was 10 kilometers! Thanks a lot to the sidestix-team!

    My 9 year old daughter is very happy with her new Sidestix. The best part is that she is these are so quiet she could sneak up on people now. She loves not drawing any more attention to herself than necessary and these certainly fit the bill. We've only had them a little over a month and she's already torn the wrap in several places. We were sent patching wrap, but I don't think we'll bother. I think in the future for our next pair we'll just choose no wrap as she's a kid who likes to be active and the wrap just isn't durable for active kids. She can really fly around on these. 100% satisfied with the product and will definitely order again when she needs to upgrade.

    Frankly, I was astonished at what an immediate difference these sticks made for me. They are intuitively designed and instantly comfortable. Within a few days, I shifted my gait to reciprocal and am standing straighter by virtue of keeping my side stix closer to my body. The only quirk is related to my own body dynamics - scoliosis affects my shoulders, leaving my left lower than my right which then requires a couple of tweaks on height. It's not yet as perfect as the right but very good. I've had the product less than a month and expect additional observations and tweaks.

    I purchased a pair of Discovery SideStix after having used some cheap forearm crutches for six months or so. They're such a big level up - they feel very well made, with no wobbly parts or play in anything, and the carbon fiber looks awesome. The big stoppers/feet work really well, and I love being able to try out different options like changing the grips. I've already ordered some sandshoes for a beach holiday next year. Thanks, SideStix!

    I wish I had gotten these years ago. They are so comfortable, light, quiet, and un-medical looking. I got the blue colour, and it's not too obvious or flashy. I've actually been able to go for walks outside now because they help me with my balance. I'm thinking I may need to invest in a larger cuff for Winter so that they fit over my jacket! Pricey, but worth it. You get what you pay for.
    Reply from SideStix:
    Hello Lisa, We're so glad to hear that you're enjoying your SideStix! We made our cuff pad easily removable so that if you have a thicker sweater or coat on you can take them out to make more room in the cuff. The cuff pads are attached with velcro so they can be easily taken out and put back in. When you have a thicker coat on you can take the cuff pads out and the coat will provide the padding. Then when you take your coat off, you can easily put the pads back in.

    I just received my new Sidestix! It's my second pair of Sidestix and they are amazing! I put the Thomas Fetterman Tornado Air tips on and it made the crutches even lighter. The measurements are all correct and the crutches fit like a glove. I appreciate all the detailed questions and recommendations Sidestix made. They really took the time to customize and make the best crutch. I really like the new handgrips. I appreciate the new screw and nut design on the cuff. Even the carrying bag is different. I appreciate all that Sidestix does for crutch users. Keep innovating and keep doing what you're doing. You are changing lives for the better. If you're looking for the best forearm crutch on the market, you can stop looking. I highly recommend Sidestix!

    I've been a crutch user my whole life and hands down these are the best I've ever used. They're light, silent, rock solid, and the ergonomic grips are a life changer. I've never felt this comfortable with a crutch. I actually look forward to using them.

    A great product that is massively making sport so much easier on one leg.

    I knew they'd be better, but I had no idea how MUCH better my sidestix were going to be! When I had to use my old steel crutches (stored in the car as emergency backup) the other day because I'd left my sidestix at home, thinking I was only going to use my wheelchair, it was like putting on lead boots. My sidestix are half the weight, twice as steady, and make me feel so much more comfortable and safe while walking. It's night and day compared to my old crutches. The cuffs fit more securely and higher on my forearm, and the ergonomic hand grips are a delight. Plus I can take them apart and stow them while I'm wheelchairing, and collapsed they fit in the overhead bin on airplanes. I love them so much I'm tempted to get a second pair, so I can have outdoor crutches and indoor ones. If you're considering sidestix, go for it! My only regret is how long I waited before I finally bought mine.

    I've used a variety of canes and then a couple of different forearm crutches over the last (counts on fingers) 13 years. Most have been serviceabl, but none can compare with my SideStix (singular). which I've used for just over a year now. I love the veritable weightlessness - it's so sleek and light that it feels like a natural extension of my own body. I don't walk with it -- it walks with me. The hand grip is by far the best I've ever used. It definitely lives up to the hype. I didn't get any new calluses when I started using it, because nothing rubbed wrong. And using it hasn't irritated any of my frequent tendonitis points (wrists, elbow, etc) because it puts my hand in a good neutral position for weight-bearing. It feels good and strong and comfortable -- so I feel good, and strong, and comfortable. I like the leather pad inside the cuff. My previous crutch (an Ergobaum) had a soft but pebbly textured liner that, over time against bare skin, collected skin/sunscreen/white stuff that was impossible to completely clean.The SideStix's leather wipes down easily and completely.
